UNION OF BURMA 

The name of "Burma" does not appear to be derived from 
the Indian word "Brama", but from the Chinese "Mien". In 
Burmese the country is called "Myanma" and most of the tribal 
names show a derivation from the Chinese. The country covers 
an area of about 270,000 square miles. On 4th January 1948, it 
became independent and the name is changed to UNION OF 
BURMA. 

The population in 1981 was 14,653,977. 

Union of Burma is bounded on the West by the Bay of Bengal; 
on the North-West by Assam, the Chittagong Hill Tracts, Lushai 
Hills and Manipur; on the North-East and East by the Chinese 
province of Yunnan and Siam; and on the South it extends as a 
narrow strip down the upper portion of the Malay Peninsula as 
far as Victoria Point. The length of the country from North to 
South is approximately 1,200 miles and the greatest width 500 
miles. It consists roughly speaking of the v alleys of the Irrawaddy, 
Chindwin and Salween rivers, and the chains of hills lying to the 
East and West of the two former. The general trend of these hills 
and rivers is from North to South, 

The Irrawaddy Biver, which is formed by the confluence of the 
rivers starting at the extreme North of the Province, and meeting 
about thirty miles north of Myitkyina, traverses the whole length 
of the province and practically divides it into two. The Chindwin 
also starts in the North of the Province to the West of the Irra- 
waddy, which it joins above Pakokku* The Salween has its source 
in Tibet and cuts through a portion of the Kachin country in the 
extreme North-West and again through the eastern portion of the 
Shan States and Karenni; it forms part of the eastern boundary 
between Burma and Siam and then debouches into the Gulf of 
Martaban just below Moulmein. 

There are many non-Burman races in the Province of Which 
the principal are the following ;*— 

The Shans who inhabit the Shan States on the mid-eastern 
portion. The Chins whose territory lies to the North East. The 
Kachins in the extreme North. The Arakanese in the West, The 
Karens on the lower eastern border. The Talaings in the southern 
portion between the mouths of the Irrawaddy, Sittang and Sal- 
ween. The Inthas occupy a portion of the Southern Shan States. 
The Was are a wild tribe occupying the trans-Salween portion of 
the Northern Shan States, These races are again sub-divided into 
numerous tribes,

The climate of the greater part of Union of Burma is tropical. 
There are three Seasons, viz., Rainy from May to October, Dry from 
November to February, and Hot from March to May. The mean 
temperature of the Coast and Delta is 70° to 85°; Dry Central Zone 
70° to 90°, and the Northern Zone 60° to 85°. The Delta Region of 
Union of Burma has an average annual rainfall of 90 to 100 inches, 
the Central Zone about 30 inches, while the Arakan and Tenasserim 
coastal belt has a rainfall of 200 inches. In the Wet Zones the 
extremes of temperature are not so great as in the Dry Zone, the 
average range of temperature being between 60° and 94° in the 
former as compared with 50° and 104? in the latter, in the Cool and 
Hot Seasons respectively. The Cool Season commences in Novem- 
ber and lasts till March, and it is followed by the Hot Season which 
lasts till May. The "Mango Showers" so called because they are 
supposed to ripen the mango fruit, fall in March or April, and the 
Rainy Season is from the middle of May until the middle of 
October.

In addition to the Rangoon Establishments 
the LW.T. Board, (Irrawaddy Section) maintain 
Dockyards at Mandalay and Moulmein, where 
Municipal, P.W.D., and Port requirements are 
catered for — also Engine and Boiler repairs to 
Rice and Saw Mills. 

At Moulmein, floating repairs can be carried 
out on Deep Sea Ships. 



SOME TRUTHS ABOUT NATIONALIZATION 

We take this opportunity to say a few words on the above 
subject, since many foreigners are not aware of the bare facts of 
the nationalization of the Irrawaddy Flotilla Co., Ltd. 

When the Irrawaddy Flotilla Co. Ltd. evacuated to India, 
they scuttled their whole -Fleet before they departed. Whatever 
ships they did not sink were taken away to India. 

When the Allied Forces reoccupied Burma, a big Military 
Fleet was brought over and at the time of the Independence of 
Burma, this Military Fleet, together with much surplus Army 
stores were negotiated upon between the Government of Burma and 
the British Government. This Military Fleet, therefore, became 
the property of the Government of the Union of Burma and NOT 
the property of the Irrawaddy Flotilla Company. 

The Irrawaddy Flotilla Co., resumed operations in Burma 
in 1946 as the Agents of the Government of. Burma. The Fleet 
consisted of three sections:— 

1. A few units of their Salvaged Fleet after their return to 
Burma. This Fleet is the property of the Irrawaddy 
FlotiUa Co. Ltd. 

2. The Military Fleet which belonged to the Government 
of the Union of Burma. 

3. New Ships which were constructed and entirely paid for 
by the Government of the Union of Burma. 

One of the terms of the Agency Agreement was that the 
Irrawaddy Flotilla Co. Ltd. was to pay 20% and the Government 80% 
towards the rehabilitation of the fleet and its dockyards; but up to 
the time of nationalization, the Irrawaddy Flotilla Co. Ltd. had not 
lived up to this condition. They have paid little or nothing towards 
the new fleet or the dockyards. The Irrawaddy Flotilla Co. 
acted as Agents to the Government of Burma by drawing Agency 
fees of 2% on the total assets. Therefore, whether the I.W.T. 
made a profit or suffered a loss, the Irrawaddy Flotilla Co. would 
always make a profit amounting to 2% of the total assets. The 
Government pays all administrative and operating charges. 

When the Irrawaddy Flotilla Company returned to Burma, the 
workshops and dockyards were all gutted. With the major share of 
Government money the Irrawaddy Flotilla Company rehabilitated 
all the dockyards. 



The Fleet was as under r—

Ltd.) consisting of :—

The nationalization of the Irrawaddy Flotilla Co. Ltd., there- 
fore, meant only nationalization of that part of the I.W.T. Fleet 
machinery and other recovered assets which belonged to the Irra- 
waddy Flotilla Co. These assets amounted to RS. 43,08,362 only. 
The balance Rs. 752,16,759-8- being the property of the Government 
of the Union of Burma already, there was no question of nationa- 
lization. It is very obvious that the property of the Irrawaddy 
Flotilla Co. Ltd. represents only a very small share of the property 
being operated by the Irrawaddy Flotilla Co. It represents about 
5.4% of the total assets. 

As for the Fleet, the composition is as under : 

105 Salvaged vessels — (owned by the Irrawaddy Flotilla 

Co. Ltd.) 

559 Military Craft 1 (owned by the Government of 
145 New Craft J — the Union of Burma) 

Total 809 Vessels 

The Irrawaddy Flotilla Coy's fleet which was actually nationa- 
lized therefore represents about 12% of the total I.W.T. Fleet. 

The principle adopted in nationalization was very fair, so much 
so that although the Irrawaddy Flotilla Co. had' the right of appeal 
it did not appeal, being satisfied with the Judgment of the Nationa- 
lization Commission. The principle adopted was generally First 
Cost less Normal Depreciation plus the Cost of Major Rehabili- 
tation.

INLAND WATER TRANSPORT BOARD 

( Irrawaddy Section ) 

THE IRRAWADDY FLOTILLA AND BURMESE STEAM 
NAVIGATION COMPANY (LIMITED), as it was then called, 
prior to nationalization of the Inland Water Transport and 
the taking over of the Irrawaddy Flotilla Co., Ltd., by the 
Government of the Union of Burma was formed in 1865 to 
implement a contract made with the Government of India, 
for the conveyance of H.M. troops, stores, and mails to stations 
of British Burma, on the river Irrawaddy, along with general 
traffic from Rangoon to Mandalay, the Capital of Upper Burma. A 
part of the Company's original operations was also the towing of 
sailing ships on the River below Rangoon, and the trade between 
Rangoon and Moulmein; this latter trade was subsequently trans- 
ferred, with the steamers employed in it, to the British India 
Steam Navigation Company. 

The contract involved taking over four steamers and three 
flats belonging to .the Government, which had previously been 
engaged in the river service. These vessels were found to be very 
unsuitable, and the Company soon required to replace thein by 
other and new vessels adapted for running the service more effec- 
tively and with greater economy. 

The original contract with the Indian Government expired in 
1868 when a new contract was entered into. This contract included 
an extended service from Mandalay to Bhamo, 1,000 miles by river 
from Rangoon, and within a short distance of the Chinese Frontier. 

Starting with the abovementioned four steamers and three 
flats the Company's fleet grew from year to year, and at the time of 
General Evacuation in 1942 comprised over 600 vessels of all discrip- 
tions, ranging from large Express Steamer class (326' long) to Cargo 
Steamers, Ferry Steamers, Creek Steamers and Tugs, and to the 
miniature Pilot Launches, which buoyed the Irrawaddy River from 
Rangoon to Bhamo. 

The large Express and Cargo Steamers maintained the long 
distance run between Rangoon and Mandalay, while a slightly 
smaller type of steamers, but of the same class, plied from Manda- 
lay to Bhamo. Large and up-to-date Ferry Steamers kept up a 
daily service between Mandalay and Prome while on the Chindwin 
River special shallow draft stern wheel steamers had to be employ- 
ed. Smaller paddle steamers ran on subsidiary ferries on the Mais 
River, while on the extensive Irrawaddy Delta communication was 
maintained by fast, twin-screw, double deck launches. In addi- 
tion to these regular service vessels other special service craft 
were continually at work punching and lifting rocks, clearing 
snags from the river bed, searching for and buoying channels, etc. 



8 

torhile another vessel was solely and fully employed sighting the 
anchors of station flats, which otherwise would get silted up and 
eventually lost. Another sideline of the Company's operations was 
the carriage of crude oil from the oil fields up-country to the 
Refineries near Rangoon. Each steamer on this service towed 
t wo Large flats each of which carried up to 800 tons of crude oil. 
A new and specially built fleet of tugs, steam barges, and iron 
cargo boats, dealt with rice milled in Delta and up-country mills, 
while similar craft were employed to bring paddy, in bulk, to the 
Rangoon mills, w r here it was milled into rice for export. 

At the time of General Evacuation in February 1942 the whole 
of above the I. F. Co. Fleet were ordered to proceed to up-country 
and later about May, 1942 all the units of the Fleet were scuttled 
at different places in up-country stations. 

The I.F. Company resumed its operations in January 1946 as 
Government Agents for the I.W.T. in accordance with the I.W.T. 
Order, 1946, after serving with the C.A.S. (B) under the Directorate 
of Transportation since 1945. 

In June 1948, the Company was nationalized under the Inland 
Water Transport Nationalization Act, 1948 and the whole Organiza- 
tion was renamed as the Inland Water Transport Board, Irrawaddy 
Section. 

The Set-up of the Inland Water Transport in Burma is as 
follows :— 

INLAND WATER TRANSPORT BOARD. 



v v 

Irrawaddy Section Arakan Section 

(Agents, Arakan Flotilla Co., Ltd.) 

On 1st October 1949, the Port Lighterage Section was amalga- 
mated with the Irrawaddy Section, thus since then there are only 
two Sections under this Board, namely the Irrawaddy Section and 
the Arakan Section the latter being operated by the Arakan FlotiWa 
Co., Ltd., for the handling of cargo and lighterage in the Arakan 
Division which has about 945 miles of navigable waterways. 

Soon after the nationalization, the country was involved in a 
general insurrection and the operations of the I.W.T. had to be 
either suspended or curtailed. 



9 

As the situation got improved gradually towards the end of 
1949, 26 Services covering 3,223 miles out of the 90 prewar Services 
covering 8,602 miles had been rehabilitated and resumed operations. 
229 Power Craft and 385 Dumb Craft were so far acquired and 
their gross tonnages excluding 32 station flats, hulks and landing 
pontoons belonging to the Irrawaddy Section alone were : — 

1939 105,257 tons 

1948/49 48,000 ,, 

1949/50 55,777 ,, 

1950/51 50,227 ,, 

The decrease in the figures for 1950/51 was due to weeding 
out of unserviceable, unsuitable and uneconomical Military Craft 
in the fleet, a process we are constantly carrying out. 

Below are some statistics which speak for themselves. The 
figures show tremendous improvements have been achieved 
since nationalization.

1950/September 1951 135,327,535 2,531,057 

The nationalized I. W. T. has been very useful to the country. 
It has assisted the Armed Forces in more ways than one in their 
Military operations and in the way of providing craft for Military 
use. In these operations our Floating Personnel on the operating 
ships have quite a lot of danger to face and up to date we have 
suffered 52 casualties. Our Labour Force, knowing the importan 
tasks they are carrying out for their country, have always willingly 
performed their duties in the face of enemy fire. 

The I. W. T has assisted in the rehabilitation of important 
industries like rice, cement, oil, timber etc. When all other means 
of transportation ceased, the I. W. T. carried all the exportable 
surplus of Burma rice from the Delta at other stations on the 
Main River thereby helping in stabilizing the economy of the 
country. In the Cement Industry w^ have assisted in every way 
by taking up machinery and other building materials to rebuild the 
cement industry at Thayetmyo. We are also responsible for bring- 
ing down cement to the tune of 2500 tons per month Regarding 
the oil industry, all oil-well materials and other building materials- 



10 

regardless of weight or bulk, ^f or their new Refinery are completely 
transported by I. W. T. craft. Our important role in bringing down 
oil from Chauk to Rangoon and from Chauk to Mandalay can never 
be over-emphasized. Our oil fleet has a carrying capacity of at 
least 24,000,000 gallons a year> which is an average of 2,000,000 
gallons per month. Up to date our B. O. C» friends have not given 
us enough oil to keep our fleet fully employed. During 1951 the total 
gallonage carried was 16,105,321 which is short of our carrying capa- 
city by 8,000,000 gallons. During the first half of 1952 the B. O. C* 
have done slightly better by carrying 8,700,033 gallons, but this is 
still short of our expectations. We hope they will buck up and do 
their best for the welfare of their own Gompany as Well as for the 
welfare of the country. 

The I. \V\ T. is always willing to assist any industry in every 
way possible,

WHAT CAN YOU BUY WITH ONE PYA ? 
Let us See ! 

During every mile you drive your car, 
your engine revolves no less than 5,000 times 
with the pistons (in case of 4 Cylinder engine), 
slamming up and down no less than 20,000 
times. 

In that MILE of driving with the revolu- 
tions that the Engine does, Carbon, Sludge, 
Gum and Corrosive Acids are being formed. 
These things in turn, speed wear and tear in 
your Engine, necessitating early Decarbon- 
izing, Valve Grinding and Overhauls, etc. 
The Gum and Carbon in your engine tend to 
make it sluggish, thereby causing more petrol 
consumption. 
Now ! You can Prevent all that from Happening by 

Spending Just one Pya per Mile of Driving. 
And How??? 

Just use MOTOR RYTHM regularly. 
Add one pint in your Engine Oil at the time 
of changing oil and four ounces to every 8 
gallons of petrol, OR, half ounce per gallon. 
If you change oil every 1,000 miles and if your 
car gives you about 30 miles to a gallon you 
will require just 32 oz. OR one quart of Motor 
Rythm, which costs you Kyats. 8/50 Pyas. 
This Works out to LESS THAN ONE PYA per Mile and 
you buy with that Economy. Safety and Longer 
Life for your Engine. 

GET IT PEOM ANY MOTOR DEALER.

pted by Government from bearing the usual six pyas stamp vide 
Amendment of 18th July 1908 in Rule 22 of Indian Stamped 
Act, 1899. 

30. A Cargo Receipt is the Board's official document for cargo 
received for transport by its steamers, launches or flats, subject to 
the following conditions — 

(1) The acceptance of a Cargo Receipt by the shipper con- 
stitutes a contract between the Board and the shipper 
whereby the Board undertakes, subject to the conditions 
set out hereunder, to deliver the goods which are the 
subject of this contract to the person producing the 
Cargo Receipt at the destination referred to therein and 
demanding delivery of the goods. 

(2) All risk of navigation, loaoling and unloading goods, 
destruction and damage, by fire, robbery, weather, wreck 
of boat, separation of flat from steamer or any cause of 
whatever nature or kind soever to be borne by the 
shipper. 

(3) When goods are not promptly taken delivery of by 
consignees from vessels' deck they will be removed and 



22 

stored by the Inland Water Transport Board at con- 
signee's risk and expense and the Inland Water Trans- 
port Board will not be liable for any loss, destruction or 
deterioration of, or damage to, such goods or any of 
them from whatever cause arising after the lapse of free 
time notwithstanding that the Inland Water Transport 
Board shall be entitled to be paid the authorized char- 
ges for goods so left on their premises. 

(4) All packages are conveyed by the Inland Water Trans- 
port Board subject to the condition that their contents 
shall be truly described in the column headed "Descri- 
ption of goods" and the shipper must state truly 
whether the packages or any and which of them contain 
any and what amount and value of cash, bank notes, 
valuable securities or documents of any description, gold 
or silver, manufactured or unmanufactured, jewels, 
precious stones, or other small articles of large value of 
any description, and such statement of contents and 
value must be made at the time of receipt of the 
packages by the Inland Water Transport board and 
freight paid for accordingly. 

<5) Any statements regarding weight and/or contents 
shown on a Cargo Receipt do not imply, on the part of 
the Inland Water Transport Board, an admission as 
to their correctness, they are used solely for the 
purpose of calculating freight, and, in the case of 
weights are merely approximate. 

(6) The Inland Water Transport Board reserves the right of 
re-measurement, re-weighment, re-classification and 
re-calculation of rates and other charges and of correction 
at destination of any errors and of collecting any 
amounts that may have been omitted or undercharged. 

31. The Board will allow their clerks to take charge of Cargo 
Receipts for the convenience of shippers. It must however be 
understood that in doing so the clerks are acting entirely as agents 
for the shipper and the Board will not be responsible for any loss 
incurred owing to the Cargo Receipts being lost or given to wrong 
persons. 

32. Agents must not deliver cargo on guarantee bond without 
reference to the Head Office, or without first ascertaining the 
wishes of the shipper. In cases of extreme urgency, such as ship- 
ments of perishables, delivery may be granted at once on guara- 
ntee but only after payment by consignees of the estimated value 
as security. This can be refunded after the necessary pracautio- 
nary steps indicated above have been taken. Any telegraphic 
messages sent in connection with the above and/or with lost Cargo 
Receipts must be at applicant's expense. 



23 

33. The Board will not be responsible for the arrival of goods 
at any station with any definite time, nor is space nor despatch of 
goods by any particular steamer guaranteed. 

34. The Board does not undertake to serve notice of arrival of 
goods to shippers, consignees or their agents and non-receipt of 
such advice will not entitle the consignee to exemption from whar- 
fage, demurrage and handling charges if the goods are not taken 
delivery of within the free time allowed. 

35. Freight and charges on all goods must be paid either when 
goods are presented for despatch or at time of delivery and all 
goods are subject to lien, not only for the freight, wharfage, demur- 
rage and handling charges on the particular goods, but also for any 
general balance which may be due to the Board by the owner or 
consignor or consignee of such goods. If the money in respect of 
which goods are detained be not paid, they may be* sold by auction, 
in the case of perishable goods at once and in the case of other 
goods on the expiry of 15 days notice of the intended auction, and 
the proceeds applied in liquidation or reduction of the amount due 
and expenses. 

36. A consignee must take delivery of goods forming part of a 
consignment whenever they are available for delivery, notwith- 
standing that the remaining goods are short or damaged or have not 
arrived at their destination or are otherwise not available for deli- 
very; and if the consignee does not take delivery of such goods 
forming part of a consignment as are available for delivery, they 
will be subject to godown, handling, demurrage and other cha- 
rges if not removed within the time allowed for removal. 

37. The Board under the Carriers Act of 1865 is exempted from 
liability for the loss of or damage to goods delivered to them for 
carriage which exceed Ks. 100 in value and are of the description 
contained in the list of ^Excepted Articles given below unless the 
value and description thereof shall have been expressly declared at 
the time of booking.

risk undertaken in carrying Excepted Articles exceeding 
Ks. 100 in value.

Union of Burma add to this schedule. 

38. The exact weight of any single cargo shipped by vessels 
of I. W. T. Board, Irrawaddy Section, weighing one ton and over, 
should be properly marked on same by the shipper. In cases 
where it is difficult to determine the exact weight, approximate 
weight as near thereto would suffice. 

The marking should be plain and visible as required by 
Article 22 of the Constitution of the International Labour Organiza- 
tion.

LAUNCH SERVICES 



Conditions of Carriage 



On services on which Cargo Keceipts are not issued* including 
all Delta Launch Services with the exception of Rangoon/ 
Henzada/Prome Launches, Rangoon/Bassein Express Launches 
and Cargo Barges and Rangoon-Laboota Launches cargo is accepted 
for conveyance on the undernoted conditions. 

Shipments have to be either clearly marked with the 
consignee's name or else a letter addressed to the consignee is to 
be made over to the Secunnie along with the goods. The destina- 
tion of the cargo must also be stated verbally when cargo is 
handed over for numbering and manifesting as Secunhies are 
not literate in English. All such consignments are accepted on 
the understanding that the consignee will apply for and take 
delivery immediately on arrival of the vessel at the station to 
which the cargo is consigned and it is understood that same will 
be delivered by the launch to the party applying for the consign- 
ment in the name of the consignee as indicated by the shipper, 

Delivery granted under the above circumstances releases the 
Board from further liability as delivery is made in good faith and 
the Inland Water Transport Board do not hold themselves iu any 
way responsible for assuring that the party who applies for 
delivery is or is not the correct consignee according to the intention 
of the shipper. 

Under these circumstances it is very necessary for shippers 
and consignees to co-operate as closely as possible regarding 
expected shipments so that their own interests may be protected. 

The above is the system which has for all time been in force 
as regards services where Cargo Keceipts are not issued and, the 
despatch of a consignment by any shipper implies the cognizance 
and acceptance of these conditions.

NOTES ON BURMESE FESTIVALS 



Full Moon of Tabaung :— This is essentially a harvest festival, 
the paddy crop having been gathered in and sold. The numerous 
festivals at Pagodas after Thadingyut culminate at Tabaung. 

Burmese Mew Year :— Called the Thingyan festival, or the 
4 'Water Festival" occurs in the month of Tagu which corresponds 
to March- April. During the celebration of this festival" much 
liquid salutation prevails," and it is undoubtedly the festival most 
enjoyed by the Burmese people and occasions much good-natured 
fun and frolic. 

Full Moon of Kason— may be termed the Buddhist Christmas 
being the anniversary of the day on which the Buddha was 
born, on which he obtained enlightenment and on which he died. 
This festival is also called in Burmese Nyaungye- thun — festival of 
pouring water on the banyan tree— and in this form goes back to 
pr'e-Buddhist times. 

Buddhist Lent :— The Wazo festival marks the beginning of the 
Buddhist Lent which lasts for three to four months. During this 
period all marriages are banned, laymen should observe strictly 
the religious precepts and the Buddhist monkhood remain in the 
seclusion of their monasteries. The Thadingyut Festival or 
"Festival of Lights" marks the end of the Lent. Houses and 
dwelling places, pagodas and shrines, temples and monasteries are 
brightly illuminated and some very beautiful effects produced. 

Tazungdaing takes place about November and on this festival 
illuminations are again on a lavish scale, especially in Rangoon 
and Lower Burma as the rains there are not really over when the 
Thadingyut Festival or "Festival of Lights" takes place. All 
Burmese festivals have a religious origin and significance and 
Tazaungdaing is not connected with the tradition of the weaving 
of priestly robes for the Lord Buddha. 

Other Festivals or Holy Days— Bakr-Id is the big Mahomedan 
festival, and, as the name implies, is nominally the day for the 
sacrifice of goats. 

Bewail or the "Feast of Lights" is a Hindu celebration and 
according to Hindu mythology the Gates of Heaven are open 
during the period of the Feast.

FAMOUS PAGODA FESTIVALS 



The famous Arakan Pagoda (Mandalay). Any one who beholds 
the MahaMuni image sees something of real historical significance. 
It is usually known by name of Paya Gyi. Thousands of 
pilgrims go daily to pay homage to this famous Pagoda. 

The Taungpyone Natpwe (Mandalay). Takes place yearly in 
the month of Wagoung (August) and almost all people from various 
towns in Burma are present during the festivities. 

Travel by steamer to Mandalay and thence to the above Paya y 
and Natpwe by cars or gharries. Besides the abovementioned, 
there are many other Pagodas at Mandalay of historical 
importance, which are worth paying a visit yearly. 

The Theingo Shin Pagoda Festival (at Pakokku) takes place 
annually in the month of Nayone (May/ June). An enjoyable 
trip to Pakokku by steamer for this Payapwe is guaranteed. 

The Shwezigon Pagoda (Nyaungoo). In accordance with Lord 
Buddha's prophecy at "Tunkyi-taung," King Thamokdarit in the 
year 293 B.E. established the city of Pagan. Of the fifty-five 
monarchs who successively occupied the throne of the Pagan 
Dynasty, the forty-second king, entitled Annawrahta erected 
the Shwezigon Pagoda in the year 421 B.E. As he expired ere 
the Pagoda was finished, his second successor King Kyansittha 
had to give the finishing touch to it in 452 B.E. Built by these 
two great Kings, the Shwezigon is famous for its nine wonders 
enumerated in Kinwunmingyi's verse. The annual festival of 
this famous Pagoda is usually held in the month of Tazanngmone 
(October/November) and the influx of visitors who travel by 
steamers to Nyaungoo for this festival is very great. 

The Myathalun Pagoda (Magwe). Lord Gaudama, while resting 
at Mount Setkatai, was entreated by two Nat Ogres to leave a 
Sacred Souvenir to be worshipped by the future generations, 
and accordingly He gave them the Emerald Bed on which He 
was then reclining. The two Nat Brothers to commemorate 
the event erected the Myathalun Pagoda (Magwe) wherein the 
said Emerald Bed was enshrined. Pilgrims from all over 
Burma are attracted to this festival, usually held in the month 
of Thadingyut (October) every year. 



38 

Take the opportunity of making pilgrimage to this Paya 
during the Payapive period and travel by an I. W. T. Steamer 
which gives real comfort and pleasure on the way to Magwe. 



The Shwezettaw Pagoda (Minbu). The Enlightened Lord 
Buddha, having pity for the villagers and merchants, after 
accepting the offering of the "Sandalwood Monastery" wherein 
He sojourned for seven complete days and at the express 
request of the King of the Dragons named Nampada left His 
sacred Footprint on the bank of the Nampada and then 
proceeded to the Thitsapan Hill where on being entreated by 
one of his disciples He had likewise to leave another Footprint 
to be worshipped by the future generations as a sacred Souvenir. 
Since then, the latter has become the centre of an annual 
festival known throughout the length and breadth of this 
country as the "Shwezettaw" festival held in the month of 
Tabodwe (Fedruary/ March). Thousands of pilgrims travel each 
year to Minbu by steamers and thence by buses and carts to 
this Pagoda. 



The Shwesandaw is the most famous of the three Pagodas 
at Prome. Its annual festival takes place in the month of 
Tazaungmone (November) and pilgrims for this Pagoda usually 
pay a visit to Po U Daung Paya which is situated about 
seven miles above Prome on the right bank of the river. 
Steamer to Prome either by the Mandalay Express Steamers 
or by the Prome Ferry Steamers which call at almost all towns 
and villages on the banks of the Irrawaddy. 



The Mawdin Payapwe which is held in the month of Taboung 
(February) is the principal festival of Bassein District. Pilgrims 
in multitudes go to this Payapwe yearly by I. W. T. launches 
to Bassein and thence to Haingyi from where they travel to 
Mawdin by country canoes and carts. 

Pilgrims from various places go by steamers to 
the above festivals, and in order to encourage 
pilgrims and to make the functions more attractive 
the Inland Water Transport Board is arranging 
for special steamers whenever possible for Travelling 
Parties bound for these Pagoda Festivals, parti- 
culars of which can be obtained on application from 
Head Office.

PLEASURE CRUISES.* 



During the dry season, short pleasure excursion trips are frequ- 
ently made on Sundays or over the week-end. 

Special cheap tickets are issued, and these trips afford an excel- 
lent opportunity for Rangoon residents to get a beneficial change 
of air and also to see something of the attractive and picturesque 
Lower Burma Delta in the pleasant company of their friends and 
other holiday makers. 

Sunday trips start from Rangoon at 7 a.m. and visits are paid to 
such Delta Towns as Yandoon, Maubin, Kyaiklat, Dedaye or 
Pyapon, arriving back in Rangoon in the evening. 

Longer trips are occasionally made, commencing on Saturday 
afternoon, to more distant stations, such as Bassein, Myaungmya, 
Moulmeingyun, Henzada, etc., returning to Rangoon early on 
Monday morning. 

Passengers usually bring their own food but there is also a first 
class Burmese Food Stall on board supplying meals at moderate 
prices. 

On the shorter trips a Band is provided which plays attractive 
selections of Burmese music. 

Tickets should be applied for in advance* in order to avoid 
disappointment. 

** p Fne Screen Berth on the Launch is reserved as a- Ladies Cloak 
Room. 

Deck space cannot be reserved ahead. 

Full particulars of the next trip can always be obtained from the 
Head Office. 

*These Cruises are not in operation yet.
